Bell was able to raise several million in the days following the debates thanks to his perceived debate win and Kinky's self-inflicted nose dive. Like Perot, Kinky was on his way and blew it. I was going to vote for him.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
